|Availability of scientific HPs|

In the upcoming release of the HP Prime, I am wondering if it would be available in stores such as Staples, Office Depot and OfficeMax.
Given my observations over the last five years or so, I have noticed that no RPN scientific models from HP have been available in these stores. I presume that, even though it's an RPN model, the fact that the 12C is a business/financial model (and the best selling one at that) is the reason that the office supply stores only have this HP model on the shelf.
Another theory I have is that kids, students, etc. are more apt to buy an algebraic, AOS, graphing algebraic model than an RPN/RPL one and that's why there are no 50g, 35s or their predecessors available now or when they were available.
In light of these, where would I find an HP Prime outside of ordering one directly from HP?
